I get love letters. I get death threats. Out here in Canada’s Wild West, cold cash and brute force have mostly succeeded in subduing the land and anyone who tries to defend it.
Until now. The bullies have met their match.

Hi, I read your piece here, and can’t fathom why you are complaining about the release of Happy Valley land from the ALR. We have a small 2.5 acre parcel, and after a professional land assessment report showing part of it unfarmable, the other at the lowest end of the scale, it was still turned down by the ALR. The place only amounts to a house with a large backyard, certainly not in any way a productive farm possibility.
So whats your beef , or do you just want to look at some nice grass at another persons expense?
“I read your piece here”
No, I don’t think you did. Try reading it again more slowly.
“it was still turned down by the ALR”
I assume you mean you tried to have your property removed from the ALR so you could sell it for development. You failed. Good – the system works.
“So whats your beef”
Try reading the article again, paying attention to the parts that mention the local food movement, food security, the dwindling supply of arable land, conflicts of interest, and abuse of process in land-use decisions. Maybe things will become clearer.
I guess this article says it all for enbridge
